I love to try out new card designs and this is one I really love! It will be so much fun to give to a friend to open and "explode!"
Credit goes to Dawn Griffith at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts for the inspiration for this card, for which she has a video tutorial.
This one below is a small explosion card and it will fit into a medium size Stampin' Up! envelope:
